The newest member of the elected officers is Kevin Kossick. Kossick joined the Georgia-Cumberland Conference Education team as a regional education director in 2009 to continue his personal, professional mission of reflecting Christ’s character to a misguided world while developing workforce-ready Seventh-day Adventist servant leaders for this life and eternity. Possessing an associate degree, bachelor’s degree, and master’s, he has served as an elementary classroom educator and principal, junior academy teacher and administrator, high school instructor and principal, adjunct college professor, executive director for Junior Achievement, and as a director of Corporate Services for the Baker College System. He and his wife, Gwen, enjoy being parents to their three adult sons: Troy, Kyle, and Garrett.
Kossick replaces Cynthia Gettys, who served the conference for eight years as vice president for education. Gettys began with the conference in 2001 as associate superintendent for education and became vice president for education in 2003. She also worked at the side of her pastor husband, Don, for 43.5 years.
The Georgia-Cumberland Conference of Seventh-day Adventists serves 161 churches, 40 schools, and 36,442 members.
